This special collection of powerful new releases examines current critical issues about race relations and identity in America. Trailers and clips are available for nearly all new titles on our YouTube 2016 Playlist.
New releases include:
SOUTHERN RITES: broadcast nationally on HBO, the film chronicles a compelling series of events including the murder of an unarmed black man by a white town patriach, and a historic campaign to elect the first African-American sheriff, all revealing deep wounds in a modern American town divided along racial lines.
PROFILED: knits the stories of family members of black and latino youth murdered by the police, and examines the impact of racial profiling, and police brutality within the historical context of racism and segregation in America.
TOO BLACK TO BE FRENCH: explores the role of race and the persistence of racism in "color blind" France. Though the history is different, the issues raised offers a similar perspective on inequality and discrimination that is found in the United States and beyond.
VOICES OF MUSLIM WOMEN FROM THE US SOUTH: views Muslim culture through the lens of five University of Alabama Muslim students, and how they negotiate their identities in a society that often has unflattering views of Islam.
